And my guess would be that if you were to try a test with threads off, and the process priority raised to "high", then the results would be very close to the results of "threads on", in both scenarios (FAH Running/Paused). I'm afraid I can't confirm your theory - I tried to increase the process pri...

I did a little test with Folding@Home and simple 800x600 frame rendering:

FAH running
threads off: 40.45
threads on: 25.30

FAH paused
threads off: 26.12
threads on: 22.63
